Here Are Your 5 New Favorite Gay Musicians

By: Daniel Villarreal

Reading gay blogs you’d think that Madonna and Lady Gaga were the only gay music on the market. But while they’re great for dancing, gays cannot live on Gaga alone.

Sometimes you long for a different musical flavor — something funky, soulful or just old-fashioned hard rock — from a guy who is actually gay.

That's why we rounded up five different gay male musicians — each in a distinct genre and each who happened to play at the 2012 South by Southwest Music Festival — to help widen your musical horizons.

While one of our picks isn't gay as in homosexual way, all five will certainly make you gay as in happy, even if it their delivery comes with a heart-rending edge — enjoy.
